    I have owned this pressing of the masterpiece, have played it enough, yet have taken good care of it... one positive aspect is that the samples already have some noise, light pops and clicks, thus a copy in very good condition will work, if anyone is interested buying one at a better price, the production is intented to sound like that, the volume of sound is sufficient and the nostalgic feel is there, I like very much how it sounds, really!!!

      According to one of my best friend's wise words, "Endtroducing" was a quintessential release of 1996 - not only for the hi-level brekbeats it brought, but for the incredible melting pot of samples brilliantly used and their ensemble result - thanks to the author's very unique research that included Northern Soul, Rare Grooves & Old School Funk tunes from the sixties and seventies.

      The quality of the breakbeats present on this masterpiece suggests an abyssal disparity between the musical backgrounds of the contemporary and the old school artists ("Endtroducing" suggests something like the 'introduction of something from the past', already ended - like something brought from the old times, though through a nowadays bold perspective.

      It can be easily figured out on the comparison between the old breakbeats formed by instrumental kicks, snares and hi-hats, created by those Funk bands with the more recent drum machine sequences used since the eighties with the purpose of simulating the original ones. It's not difficult to realize the higher complexity and the artistic level of the older ones.

      "Endtroducing" is a sort of a testament of these ancient habilities those rare grooves & Soul-Funk bands had whose fragments were re-constructed magnificently by the multi-talented DJ Shadow.

      While the contemporary tecnologies seems to offer an unimaginable amount of possibilities, we realize more than ever the importance of the very essential aspect of our environment: the musical culture.
